The Weeknd has released Live at SoFi Stadium, a 31-track live album connected to his recent HBO concert film of the same name.
The material covers most of his biggest hits and includes a guest appearance from Ty Dolla $ign on “Oh Nah.” The Live at SoFi Stadium film arrived after Abel Tesfaye wrapped his extensive world tour in support of last year’s Dawn FM.
Outside of music, Tesfaye has been working on a new feature film and The Idol, an HBO show with Euphoria’s Sam Levinson. Rolling Stone recently reported that The Idol’s debut on HBO has been repeatedly delayed by changes to scripts and other parts of the production process, attracting criticism from some of the project’s crew members.
Tesfaye responded on Instagram by posting a clip from The Idol where he rebuffed the magazine in character. The Idol does not yet have a release date. On the work front, The Weeknd is all set to make his movie debut alongside Jenna Ortegato.
Besides Wednesday star Ortega, the movie will also feature Barry Keoghan. The shooting is already underway in Los Angeles, though details regarding the plot have not yet been revealed.
The Weeknd and Shults wrote the film with Reza Fahim, who also worked alongside him while making The Idol with Euphoria creator Sam Levinson. Tesfaye and Fahim will produce the film with Kevin Turen and Harrison Kreiss.
